Anarchy in Athens : An Ethnography of Militancy, Emotions and Violence Hardback

Part of the Contemporary Anarchist Studies series


The battles between Athenian anarchists and the Greek state have received a high degree of media attention recently.

But away from the intensity of street protests militants implement anarchist practices whose outcomes are far less visible.

They feed the hungry and poor, protect migrants from fascist beatings and try to carve out an autonomous political, social and cultural space.

Activists within the movement share politics centred on hostility to the capitalist state and all forms of domination, hierarchy and discrimination.

Based on extensive ethnographic fieldwork among Athenian anarchists and anti-authoritarians, Anarchy in Athens unravels the internal complexities within this milieu and provides a better understanding of the forces that give the space its shape. -- .
